I am finally back in the office this week after a great adventure road tripping halfway across America. Almost 3 weeks ago, my mom, Anabelle and I packed ourselves into my mom’s Prius and drove across the western states to Minneapolis, where my mom lives. It turned out to be quite an experience! I’ve never seen most of the country we drove through, and it was absolutely stunning. Also, we managed to hit the road just as the first of the wintery storms were rolling across the West, so we had dramatic rain in Nevada, hail in Idaho, blizzards and an earthquake (yes, an earthquake – can you believe??) in Wyoming, and frighteningly high winds in Minnesota. We did arrive safely, though, and had a great visit. The flight home was not nearly as dramatic, but by that time I was happy not to get back in the car. The countryside was so beautiful that I found myself dreaming of prints inspired by the landscapes of the West. Maybe a new collection!
And speaking of new collections, check back on Thursday, when I’ll be sharing some sneak peeks of my two upcoming collections, Marin and Anika.
Here are a few photos of the beautiful land between here and there.
